The traditional summer picnic meeting was once again at Swopes Pond on June 15, 2013. Swopes Pond is the ancestral home of our President, Mary Gibson. Ray & Mary graciously opened their home to the club and provided the hamburgers & hot dogs, while the rest of the guests brought pot luck dishes. Everyone enjoyed the cool breeze and shady area around the beautiful lake. Many even made the journey to visit the bee yard after the meeting and lunch.
The main topic of the meeting was the New Beekeeper’s Class. The club agreed to host a class on October 12, 2013. Until then, club leaders and members will work to prepare the agenda, set the location, and gather demonstration materials for the 75 folks who showed an interest in the class.
